Hanna Andersson, the Swedish inspired clothing store, is opening its doors at Walt Whitman Mall today. Located near Bloomingdale’s next to Michael Kors, Hanna Andersson carries clothes and accessories for every member of the family, newborn to age 12, plus matching fashions for mom and dad too.* The Long Island Mamas had the opportunity to preview the new store last night.
The Huntington store boasts a warm and inviting atmosphere and features bright colors in unique and fun patterns for both boys and girls. It offers a wide and spacious fitting room, big enough to hold a double stroller.
With the holidays approaching, the store is filled with items such as tree ornaments, books, stuffed animals, Santa caps and legendary Hanna Andersson organic cotton jammies for even the littlest elves.
Hanna Andersson uses European clothing sizes which measures by height in centimeters; so customers will see sizes such as 50, 60, 70 and up to 160cm. The retailer’s philosophy is that since every child grows at their own pace, all customers need to do is measure the kid’s height for a good fit. The staff is always around to help find the right fit and can provide conversion charts to U.S. sizes as well.
The store also offer a line of Christening clothes and has plans for a line of Star Wars themed apparel due November 12 and a New York inspired line coming out in January 2013.
As an added bonus on opening day, Hanna Andersson is offering 20% off an entire purchase. Plus while supplies last, customers will receive an organic cotton tote bag with a $75 purchase. In addition, on Thursday, October 25, Hanna Andersson will be giving 20% of store sales to the Long Island Children’s Museum & Make-A-Wish Foundation of Suffolk County.
So come say Hej! (Swedish for “hello”) to Hanna Andersson opening its newest location at the Walt Whitman Shops, or stop into the other Long Island location at Roosevelt Field.
